ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2015: #100-81

Pop 'til you drop.

Pop ’til you drop.

Here it is, the annual countdown of the top 100 hits based on my weekly personal charts from the first week of December in 2014 to the last week of November in 2015. It was another great year for both chart veterans and newcomers, novelty hits and timeless ballads, country, pop, rock, and everything in between. We have them all, from “Hello” to “No Good In Goodbye”. Now, it is time to say “hello” to the Top 100 and “goodbye” to the year that was 2015.

In the first 20 songs on the countdown, our entries include a boy band who just gave their last live performance before a hiatus, a high school student with some boy trouble, the first fully a cappella track on the pop radio survey since the mid-90’s, a singer and songwriter that kept it smooth on my very first chart in 1999, and a bunch of singles that aren’t Cheap Trick, Lionel Richie and/or Morris Albert remakes. Confused? Let’s clear it all up, from #100 to #81:
